Shaping Smarter Regulations

OSHA Should Withdraw Its Interpretation on Walk Around Rights

OSHA's Feb. 13, 2013 letter of interpretation to the United Steelworkers allowing third-party employee representatives to accompany OSHA inspectors on walk-around inspections, without any showing of need or qualifcations is contrary to agency regulations that say an employee representative "shall be" an employee of the company. Accordingly, this LOI should be withdrawn.
